Safety upgrades to commence on the Kings Highway

Motorists travelling on the Kings Highway at Foxs Elbow Road in Larbert will soon enjoy safer journeys with key safety upgrades set to commence next week.

Member for Monaro Nicole Overall said the NSW Government was investing $1.1 million under the Safer Roads Program to improve the safety of motorists along the 2.6 kilometre stretch of road.

“We are committed to ensuring the safety of motorists across our road network by reducing the likelihood and severity of run off road and head on crashes,” Ms Overall said.

“This particular stretch of road has seen 11 crashes in the period from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2018, one of which resulted in a serious injury.

“Safety treatments to reduce the likelihood and severity of these crashes include widening the shoulders and widening the centre lines to create better separation of oncoming traffic.

Minister for Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said a channelised right hand turn bay will also be created to allow motorists turning into Foxs Elbow Road more time to decelerate and wait for a gap in traffic to turn across the oncoming lane.

“The NSW Government is investing in local communities and improving safety out on our regional network to ensure a brighter future for regional NSW,” Mr Farraway said.

Work will be carried out on the Kings Highway at Foxs Elbow Road from Monday 20 June until Friday 19 August, between 7am and 4pm Monday to Friday, weather permitting.

Stop/slow traffic control, single lane closures and a 40 km/h speed limit will be in place during work hours. Motorists are advised to allow for an additional ten minutes travel time and to follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
